In the original script, "The Noose" was called "The Black Noose". In pre-production, it was decided that a black noose would not show up as well in the dark, so it was changed to regular, beige rope and became simply "The Noose". See more »
Great slow burn with lots of twists and surprises!
Saw this at a film festival and it was the best thing I saw, hands down!
Meticulously sets up what appears to be a simple story of a horror film writer with amnesia whose nightmares, despite the help of a beautiful hypnotherapist, become more and more disturbing. The nightmares reveal memories of a dark past. But are they real? Some of them include characters from his own films! So the fun is trying to figure out what's going on along with the writer.
Bill Oberst, Jr. as the writer is fantastic at walking the line between seeming to be a terrorized, wounded man and a possible psychopath. He's the perfect unreliable narrator, since we see things through his eyes. Can we trust them? As the film moves into its final third, you'll begin to wonder if you can trust yourself!
I highly recommend this psychological thriller. It's an extremely rewarding slow descent into a very creepy and thrilling place.
